BioShock Infinite is now set to be released on March 26 for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. Yeah, that's an extra month of no totally awesome fun times with BioShock. Bummer. It seems Ken Levine cares more about making great games than he cares about getting them out on time. (Allistair Pinsof)
BioShock Infinite begins much as the original begins: a mysterious man, lost at sea, on a mission that starts at a lighthouse and leads to who knows where. But then, the player ascends up toward the heavens, or at least what a citizen of the flying city Columbia calls, "the closest you can get to heaven." ... my three hours spent playing BioShock Infinite from its opening, I have to say that it indeed seems to be the closest you can get to heaven.

Konami has given us a pretty detailed look at what we can expect out of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. This first video shows the Metal Gear Ray battle that was teased months back, and it is pretty badass. (Hamza Aziz)
